Play the key whose pitchyou want to adjust, then use the [-] or [+] buttons to adjust its pitch.Stretch TuningOff, Preset,User (User: -50–0–+50)What is the Duplex Scale?The Duplex Scale is a system of sympathetically vibrating strings sometimes included in grand pianos.These sympathetically vibrating strings are not struck directly with hammers, but sound by vibrating in sympathy with the vibrations of otherstrings. By resonating with the overtones, these strings add richness and brilliance to the sound. These sympathetic strings are added only tothe high register above approximately C4. Since they do not have a damper (a mechanism that stops them from sounding), they will continuesounding even after you play a note and then release it to stop the sound of the string that was actually struck.35


PerformingSimulating the Way that Sounds are Created on an Organ (Tone Wheel)On the FP-7F, you can use the [ORGAN] button to select one of the “TW-Organ 1–6” tones to play tones that simulate the way in which sound isproduced by an organ.On a tone wheel organ, you can create original sounds by sliding nine harmonic bars (drawbars) forward or backward to change their relative balance.Each bar is assigned a different footage, and this footage determines the pitch of the sound. 8’ is the footage that forms the basic pitch of the sound;this is the center around which you create the tone.By assigning the footage to the TONE buttons, you can simulate the way in which these harmonic bars are used to create the sound.What’s the feet?“Feet” is a term that began as a measurement of the length of the pipes in a pipe organ.The pipes that produce the basic pitch (fundamental) for each note are considered to be “8 feet” in length.Therefore, a pipe producing a pitch one octave below that of the reference of 8’ (eight feet) would be 16’; for one octave above the reference, thepipe would be 4’, and to take the pitch up yet another octave it would be shortened to 2’.The pitches of the harmonic bars are related as follows.When the middle C (C4) note is pressed,each harmonic bar will sound the following notes.one octavebelow5th root 8th 12th 15th 17th 19th 22nd8’ =On tone wheel organs, the high-pitched footage for a portion of the high range, and the low-pitched footage for a portion of the low range are“folded-back” in units of one octave.Folding back the high-frequency portion prevents the high-frequency sounds from being unpleasantly shrill, and folding back the lowfrequencyportion prevents the sound from becoming “muddy.”On the FP-7F faithfully simulates this characteristic.36

When notes were played staccato(articulating each note separately), percussion was applied to all notes. This method is referred to as single trigger algorithm, and is a very importantelement in organ performance. On the FP-7F faithfully simulates this characteristic.1.

Performing Along with Rhythm (Session Partner)Selecting a RhythmHere’s how to select a different rhythm that’s suitable for the song you’re playing.What is a Rhythm?The FP-7F contains built-in “Rhythms” for musical styles such as jazz and rock.Each of these rhythms combines elements that create the distinctive atmosphere of that musical style; they are the basis of the accompanimentproduced by Session Partner.Each rhythm consists of the following three elements.• Drums• Bass• Accomp (accompaniment other than drums and bass)1. Press the [DISPLAY] button a number of times to access the SESSION PARTNER screen.The display will show the number and name of the rhythm.2. Use the [-] [+] buttons to select a rhythm.For details on the available rhythms, refer to “Rhythm List (Session Partner)” (p. 95).MEMO• You can press the TEMPO [-] or TEMPO [+] button to change the rhythm’s tempo.• You can choose which rhythm parts will sound (p. 67).45


Performing Along with Rhythm (Session Partner)Adding Variation to the RhythmEach rhythm provides two accompaniment patterns; the original accompaniment pattern and a more colorful variation accompaniment pattern.A fill-in (a short phrase) will be inserted when the accompaniment pattern changes, making your song more expressive. For example, it’s effective touse the quieter original pattern during the first half of the song, and then switch to the variation pattern later in the song as the energy level builds up.1. Press the SESSION PARTNER [VARIATION] button to switch the accompaniment pattern.SESSION PARTNER [VARIATION] buttonUnlitLitExplanationThe original accompaniment pattern will play.The variation accompaniment pattern will play.The SESSION PARTNER [VARIATION] button will blink while the fill-in is playing.What’s a “Fill-In”?A short improvisational phrase inserted at the bar line is called a “Fill-In.” The phrase best suited to the selected Rhythm is played.46

The intro will not play at this time.You can store up to sixteen chords.3. Press the SESSION PARTNER [START/STOP] button to stop recording your chord progression.The recorded chord progression is recorded in “User Chord.” To select a recorded chord progression, press the [-] button when chord progressionpattern number 1 is displayed, and select “User Chord” (p. 67).MEMO• Each chord progression pattern can be up to sixteen measures long. When the FP-7F is shipped from the factory, it is set so that a chord progressionof up to eight measures can be recorded. Recording will stop automatically when you exceed the currently specified number of measures.A maximum of sixteen chords can be stored.If you want to change the number of measures for the chord progression to be recorded, refer to “Changing the Number of Measures for Recordinga Chord Progression” (p. 48).• If desired, you can keep the chord progression pattern from changing even when you switch rhythms. Refer to “Fixing the Chord Progression Pattern(Chord Prog. Fix)” (p. 68).• Your original chord progression pattern will not play correctly if you play it using a time signature that’s different from when you recorded it.• Your original chord progression patterns can be saved in a Registration (p. 49).* The chord progression you record will be lost when you turn off the power. If you want to keep it, save it in a Registration (p. 50).Switching Chord Progression Patterns while You PerformIf you switch registrations while Session Partner is playing, the chord progression pattern will also change. By switching chord progression patterns,you can easily perform with accompaniment for an entire song.For example, store the chord progression pattern for melody “A” in registration 1-1, and store the chord progression pattern for melody “B” inregistration 1-2. Then, while Session Partner plays, switch the registration from 1-1 to 1-2 at the right moment. The chord progression used by SessionPartner will switch from the melody “A” pattern to the melody “B” pattern.47

This tuning of all the instruments to a standard pitch iscalled “master tuning.”Adjusting the Tuning (Temperament)You can play classical music such as baroque pieces using their originaltuning.Most modern songs are composed and played with the assumptionthat equal temperament (the most common tuning in use today) willbe used, but when classical music was composed, there were a widevariety of other tuning systems in existence.Playing a composition with its original tuning lets you enjoy thesonorities of the chords that the composer originally intended.SettingEqualJust MajorJust MinorArabicKirnbergerMeantonePythagoreanWerckmeisterExplanationIn this tuning, each octave is divided into twelveequal steps. Every interval produces about thesame amount of slight dissonance.This tuning eliminates ambiguities in the fifthsand thirds. It is unsuited to playing melodiesand cannot be transposed, but is capable ofbeautiful sonorities.The Just tunings differ from major and minorkeys. You can get the same effect with the minorscale as with the major scale.This tuning is suitable for the music of Arabia.This is an improvement of the Meantone andJust tunings that provides a high degree offreedom of modulation. Performances arepossible in all keys (III).This scale makes some compromises in justintonation, enabling transposition to other keys.This tuning, devised by the philosopher Pythagoras,eliminates dissonance in fourths andfifths. Dissonance is produced by third-intervalchords, but melodies are euphonious.This temperament combines the Meantone andPythagorean tunings. Performances are possiblein all keys (first technique, III).Specifying the Keynote (Temperament Key)When playing with tuning other than equal temperament, you needto specify the temperament key for tuning the song to be performed(that is, the note that corresponds to C for a major key or to A for aminor key).If you choose an equal temperament, there’s no need to select atemperament key.SettingC–BSetting415.3 Hz–440.0 Hz–466.2 HzMEMOWhen the instrument is shipped from the factory, this is set to“440.0 Hz.”66

TroubleshootingSound does not play correctlyProblem Cause/Action PageNot all the notes you play are heardThe maximum simultaneous polyphony is 128 notes.When using Dual Play or when performing along with a song or rhythm, or when making heavy use ofthe damper pedal, it is possible for the performance data to exceed the polyphony, causing some of thenotes you play to be omitted.—Keyboard or song pitch is incorrectTwo sounds are heard when you play thekeyboardPressing the [STRINGS/PAD], [GUITAR/BASS], or [VOICE/GM2] button causesother tones to be heardEffect not appliedReverberation is heard even when thereverb effect is switched offSound changes abruptly at a certain notein the upper rangeA “whining” noise is heardSomething wrong with low-frequencysounds/Buzzing resonance occursCould you have made transpose settings?

P. 26If an external sequencer is connected, set the FP-7F to the Local Off state, and turn your sequencer’s SoftThru setting off.The [STRINGS/PAD], [GUITAR/BASS], and [VOICE/GM2] buttons can also function in selecting “recommendedtones.”With the FP-7F’s factory settings, if you connect a commercially available CD-ROM drive to the externalmemory connector, then select a song from a VIMA CD-ROM (VIMA TUNES), suitable tones for thesong will automatically be assigned to the [STRINGS/PAD], [GUITAR/BASS], and [VOICE/GM2] buttons,allowing you to select appropriate tones by pressing these buttons.When you’re using Dual Play or Split Play, and the two tones use different effects, no effect will beapplied to tone 2 (when using Dual Play) or the left-hand tone (when using Split Play).Since the FP-7F’s piano sounds faithfully simulate the depth and resonance of an acoustic piano, thismay sound like reverberation even when the reverb effect is off.On an acoustic piano, the top one and a half octaves of notes will sound until they decay naturally,regardless of the damper pedal. The tone quality of these notes will also be different.The FP-7F faithfully simulates this and other characteristics of an acoustic piano. The range that isunaffected by the damper pedal will change depending on the transposition setting.If you hear this in the headphones:Some brilliant and sharply defined piano sounds contain significant high-frequency components, whichmay sound like a metallic resonance has been added. This is due to the faithful simulation of a piano’sactual characteristics, and does not indicate a malfunction.You can adjust this resonance by editing the following settings.• Duplex Scale setting (p. 35)• String Resonance setting (p. 35)• Reverb depth (p. 25)If you don’t hear this in headphones:Some other reason may be responsible (e.g., resonance in the FP-7F itself). Please contact your dealer orRoland Service Center.If you don’t hear this in headphones:When performing at a high volume, the speakers or an object near the FP-7F might resonate. It is alsopossible for fluorescent lights or glass doors in the room to resonate. For the low notes in particular, thisis more likely to occur at high volume. To minimize such resonance, take the following measures.• Locate the speakers 10–15 cm away from the wall.• Lower the volume.• Move the resonating object farther away.If you hear this in headphones:Some other reason may be responsible. Please contact your dealer or Roland Service Center.At high volumes, the sound may be distorted due to the way in which you are playing. If so, reduce thevolume.P. 84—P. 26P. 27————P. 1588
